Every gym has a few of them hulking about. I'm talking about those muscle hunks who concentrate on one part of their physique at the expense of other muscles. Ironically, it's often these ignored parts of the body that draw notice because they are in comically sharp contrast to the overworked parts. Although there are plenty of guys whose sculpted bodies are beautifully proportioned, there are these others who seem curiously oblivious that their bulging muscles actually accentuate the parts they ignore. For example:
- Bic pecs/tiny mosquito-bite nipples. A variation is nipples that point downward because the pec muscles have been worked out to such a degree that they've been twisted unnaturally.
- Bulging upper body/toothpick legs
- Musclebound body/tiny head - Also known as the Michelin Man, it aches to look at him - he sports hulking shoulders and is unable to hang his arms by his side.
(To add a carnival sideshow look to any of the above, just add excessive tattoos.)
It's somewhat laughable that all of the effort fueled by their vanity is neutralized by a workout routine that ends up drawing attention to their neglected body parts. So, although I may be looking your way from across the workout floor, it's not necessarily because I'm admiring what I see ... I may just be amused.
